Workshops

An Introduction to Assistive Technology

Hello Everyone,

I am Ryan Kennedy. Assistive Solutions and Digital Inclusion Specialist for SCOPE.

We run FREE of charge Workshops – An Introduction to Assistive Technology around the UK and Wales.

We will be running a morning session 10am-12:30pm and an afternoon session from 13:30-4pm.

The workshop is a 2.5 hour group event that that introduces how day to day digital technologies like computers, mobile phones, tablets and voice devices (Amazon Alexa, Google Home)  are accessible for disabled people and gives attendees the opportunity to experience some high/ low tech communication devices, and specialist software too.

We have run these events over the last couple of years and they have been very popular especially as they are free and we are not selling anything, so no catches there.

If you have any questions or requests about the products/software we cover then feel free to drop me an email or give me a call on the below number.

If this event isn’t for you or you know someone that you think would benefit from attending please share this with them.

SEN Provisions – We are keen on having members of staff from SEN settings, including Teachers, LSAs, SENCO, and also any Healthcare specialists that you may work alongside within your work setting.

I look forward to seeing you on the day. If you would like a more in-depth list of areas covered then please do not hesitate in contacting me.

For all booking enquiries please email Lynn Carr specifying either the morning or the afternoon session at lynn.carr@sunderland.ac.uk
